Faultless experience

I arranged a visit to Kapama at very short notice, the service from Lindsay was exceptional with everything taken care of quickly and efficiently. The Safari was my first and the whole experience from being collected at the airport was faultless, the lodge was a very high standard, the guides were incredibly knowledgeable and really cared about making sure we had a great time seeing as many animals as possible, including all of the ‘Big 5’

Ranger Buck planned a fabulous 8 day trip

Ranger Buck planned a fabulous 8 day trip for 4 of us to Zimbabwe, Namibia, Botswana, and Cape Town South Africa. Seriously everything was planned from the great hotels to the many transfers and transportation between all the destinations. We received details itinerary both via email and on digital app. We had easy communication and felt individual attention for our group. We could not have asked for a better trip! Thank you Ranger Buck.

Amongst The Best We Have Ever Experienced

“We had a most interesting and informative time at Lion Sands River Lodge. It really is a lovely “modern” lodge – the architecture combines a little of the usual “bush” lodge but the real focus is on clean lines and letting in as much light and views as possible. The staff were excellent, and the rangers simply superb – amongst the best we have ever experienced. Thank you very much for arranging this trip for us – we will be sure to recommend you to others!”

- Andrew


Absolutely Everything Was Just Mind Blowing

“That was unbelievable. Absolutely every aspect of the trip was unreal. Moses, our guide, was incredible. Everything, absolutely everything was just mind blowing. I was so taken aback. The gorillas were obviously the number one priority but I was just so impressed with Rwanda, the people, just everything, everything was brilliant, thank you so much.”
